Ah, Steve, I didn't know about star and hash options here! Thanks for that little gem! <Smiles>

Hi Peter,

With respect, that's probably because you didn't take the
time to learn Symbian <Smile>.

For example, if Contacts is your sixth option in the
menu, you don't have to arrow at all, just press the menu
and hit 6.

If you want the 11th option, hit Star, and the twelfth
hit Hash.  Bet you didn't know that?

If you want the 20th option then life gets a little
trickier, but start arrowing up rather than down.

Also you can set up to 8 shortcuts on your phone, which
can be accessed with single keys, using the joystick and
key1 and key2.

Because you really wanted to learn the iPhone, you did,
and I respect that, but people don't always invest the
time to learn Talks and the phone itself.

All the best

Steve

I'd disagree and say it's a very good interface for the
blind. The only downfall is the typing but now that apps
such as dragon dictate are around that problem is solved.
I can work much quicker using the iphone/ipod gestures
then I ever could with Talks, having to try and move
around a screen and navigate menus.

Hi Hussein,

You seem to make some assumptions here.

I am totally blind and I use the iPod touch.  It is not
an efficient interface for the blind, but totally
usable, and pretty well accessible. But Apple have
designed voiceover so that it can be used by totals.

It's a good music player, but I wouldn't want an iPhone
for example, as for
productivity it really sucks big time in my view.

All the best

Steve

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your post.  You're the first VI person I've
come across using the
Touch and I'd be fascinated at just how much of the
functionality of the device you are able to use whilst
remaining with the stock firmware.  If you
don't mind my prying, but you must have some residual
sight to handle the touch interface?  Would you say this
is worth considering for others needing
to look for a new media player (for example, if my iPod
Video ever kicks the
bucket) or would it be too difficult to handle?

Now for your questions.  For video conversion I use AVS
Video Converter. It
is a paid for solution but offers a wide range of
presets you can choose from, including for iPods.  It's
also accessible with my Supernova screen reader, or easy
to see if you are using magnification.  No doubt someone
will offer a free solution as I'm sure I've heard of one
myself, but the name escapes me right now.

HTH.

OK Folks!

Santa Claus brought me a great new little gadget for
xmas!  Yes, the new 32
GB Ipod Touch.  I've listened to a couple of podcasts re
this and have got to grips pretty well with it's
function and how to get around it.  I have a
couple of questions however.  I know there is a more
specialised list which
T and T run but wondered if there were many on the list?
Also, does anyone
have the sub details?

Now for my questions:

1  What is the easiest way to get .avi files onto the
ipod?  I believe they
need to be converted first, how do people find the
accessibility of these conversion tools?  Also, where
can I get the most accessible one from?

When I go into the music section of the front screen, is
there a way to easily switch between artis, album and
song views?  How easy is it to set up
play lists?

Anyone got any suggestions for really cool aps which are
free?  Also though,
any paid ones which, again, are accessible?

I am pretty knocked out at how easy the touch screen is
to manipulate.  As an additional question, how
accessible are apple mac computers in general?
presumably, there is more facilities in the full blown
voice over ap?  I hear it is akin to window eyes?  So,
does that mean you can get the list of
links etc in safari?

Are there any more tutorials etc for the touch?  And my
final question, How
similar is it to the I-phone?

Best wishes.

Steve
